I have a fresh install of ubuntu 16.04 in a thinkpad e470 but no wifi appears nor the option to enable the wifi. I already tried enabling it using the fn key, but it still doesn't work.
I already tried many different approaches, including trying to update the packages, checking for drivers, restarting network manager and following these solutions: https://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2349245 Wifi networks are not showing in Ubuntu 16.04
Unfortunately none of this worked :/
The output from lshw -C network is as follow:
